One of the scariest steps in my life was coming out, due to all of the unknowns that followed.
Through my life experience, I have learned one important mantra:
“Friends and family come and go, the only person you have to live with for the rest of your life . . . is you.
Take care of yourself, honor your truths and follow your gut.”
I continue to use this mantra to keep me going through the hardships that life presents us, even beyond our gender journeys.
